Church news for the week beginning 31st July 2016

Today’s Bible Talk

Today Jodie begins a six week series on “Two ways to Live”, with the first talk ‘God as loving ruler and creator’, from Genesis chapter 1 verses 26 to 28, and Revelation chapter 4 verses 6 to 11.

You, me and the Bible course

At the same time as our ‘Two Ways to Live’ talk series we’re going to be going together through the workbook ‘You, me and the Bible’. If your small group leader’s not doing it then you can grab a copy for just $5 and do it with a friend.

5pm Service Dinner

To help cover costs for the dinner after the 5pm service, we have increased the contribution per person to $3. The $10 maximum per family remains the same.

Seeking a new assistant minister

The search is underway for a new Assistant Minister at our church. Please pray that we find the ideal person, and please consider whether you might be able to increase your regular giving to help us reach the giving target that’s needed.

Giving update

Each week we need to receive [olimometer_target id=3] in order to meet our commitments. In the last calendar month, our average weekly giving was [olimometer_progress id=3], leaving a gap of [olimometer_remaining id=3].

Up to the end of the last calendar month we needed to have received [olimometer_target id=1]. Compared to that total we received [olimometer_progress id=1], leaving a gap of [olimometer_remaining id=1].
